Transcript

So now I'm going to show you how to do a shoulder massage with hot stones today. We have the palm side stones. We're going to gently start at this declute area. Warming that whole area up. You can go around the joints of the shoulders here. And along those straps and back again. Go ahead and keep one of those stones under her neck for warmth. We're going to use the edge of this stone to get nice and deep into the track and fall all along those lines. A little bit less pressure when you get over these bony areas here and then back nice and deep into that area of the muscle along that line.

You can even follow those stones all the way up the neck to complete that massage. It feels really amazing to just have that one nice long smooth line with the stones. Then put the stone flat back in your hand for a little broader pressure. Be sure to remember to check in with your client about the temperature of the stone. If it is a little hotter you just keep it moving and remember to flip the stone in your hand and continue on with the massage. That's how you give a shoulder massage with hot stones.
